Triggerfinger: bass player Mr. Paul calls it quits

Mr. Paul is calling it quits after being the bass player for Belgian powertrio Triggerfinger for 20 years. A mesage from the band's website:

After 20 years of guarding the deepest rumble of the band, recording multiple albums, widespread tours ranging from Norway to South-Africa, from Zichem to Tokyo, from Canada to Los Angeles, Monsieur Paul made the difficult decision to take a different path.

Time for change, for new adventures and challenges.

We all cherish being part of this extraordinary story, playing, recording and traveling. Discussing, ranting and laughing over gallons of coffee while trying to make sense of the (music)world around us and to preserve and expand the core idea of what our band is all about.

We consider ourselves very lucky we are still able to do this after almost 20 years.

To a certain degree we carved out our own place and route through a joint effort and hard work, although sometimes it was just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. The chief ingredient that made Triggerfinger able to grow over the years remains our audience. We are awfully grateful.

While Monsieur Paul will carve out a new trail for himself in the exhilarating music wilderness, Ruben and Mario will continue to navigate the group to new adventures and are writing music for an upcoming Triggerfinger release.

The three final shows with Mr. Paul are in Amsterdam, Groningen, and Brussels. Geoffrey Burton fill in for the rest of the dates.
